He is 21 years old. Better known as “DJ Shane,” Bingaman will be out of work for three months. A heart condition led to a blood clot that caused the stroke, said Jenn Smith, manager of Griff’s. Bingaman fell when he had the stroke and cracked two vertebrae in his neck. He will have to wear a brace for two months. Bingaman has no health insurance. To assist him with his medical expenses, Griff’s will hold an event Sunday night called “That’s My DJ.”
“My hope in this was to see what kind of help we can get from the community,” Smith said. The event will include music from DJ Tipsy. T-shirts and raffle tickets for gift cards donated by local businesses will be sold, Smith said. A $5 cover charge will go directly toward Bingaman’s medical expenses. Additionally, Bingaman will receive 25 percent of Griff’s income from the event. “We’re trying to help with whatever we can,” Smith said. “I know we can’t make it all better, but we’re trying.”
